experiences. one was a case we did in central america. two children from el salvador to the united states and accompanied including an 18-month-old child being brought by the smugglers. there were a number of children that had not arrived at their destinations so it was the type of dangerous they have and no one to turn to for those individuals -- brought in by smugglers and was one of the most heart wrenching things to see and 18-month-old child being placed in the hands of smugglers who don't care about anything except money. what can happen? and 8-year-old was being smuggled where she was abused by one of the smugglers and one of the other men in the group where they would use a needle to do that -- a tremendous difficult thing to learn or experience. when i was smuggled on a couple occasions there were children with me in the group and for me listening to this i will never forget being in the back of the you hall with a 6-year-old child and an 8-year-old girl and a little kid is talking about the opportunity to get an education in the united states and it is hard wrenching. wha
